Updates! It’s been a while since we have given personal updates. We traveled back to the U.S. for a week in November to share two topics at the Proclaim/Serve meeting in Bluffton, Indiana. We presented Child Sponsorship and also Practical Ways to Share Your Faith. We got to stay at Stan & Gloria Hartzler’s home in Orrville, Ohio most of the week and we hung out with Evan & Grant as much as we could! They are renting a house together in Rittman, Ohio with their friend, Joe Smith! It is an older, homey three-bedroom house. In Bluffton, we were blessed to stay with Tom & Sue Neuenschwander and attend the Bluffton Apostolic Christian country church with them.
We recently went on a short retreat to Coby Beach with lots of HarvestCall board members that were here for a week of work, meetings, research or support. We enjoyed getting to know each of them better! The kids were blessed by the Eric & Jami Hartzler family returning to share a short Bible school with them at the retreat!
Trinity is diving into her senior year of school. She has Creole down pretty well, so she has chosen to take French this year! This is Grace’s least favorite subject and it is mandatory at her school. Maybe they can get together? Grace loves it when her mom comes in for devotion time or subbing her class. Susie is glad for the opportunity to step into Grace’s class and enjoys teaching the kids.
